ABOUT THE ARTIST:
I am always experimenting with techniques, materials, and form to create unique, ceramic artwork that comes from my soul and have worked with clay for more than 33 years. I hope you find something you think is beautiful.
My work is inspired by nature, especially the Arizona Sonoran Desert, with its expansive sky, dramatic monsoon storms, and the variety of life. I enjoy abstraction and want you to discover something new each time you enjoy my work.
